Gloria, Azaleas and Purple Iris

Gloria my water girl





It seems that all of my iris bloom one color at a time. I love them though they are beautiful.




Could someone tell me the name of the little flowering plant next to this Iris? We have had them for years. It may be a weed but I love it.








Happy Gardening to everyone!
I took that saying of Roland's from the show

  3. One of my neighbors has these really large white and purple/yellow irises blooming in his front yard. It's just beautiful. I've snapped a couple photos with my camera already :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  4. She is so pretty! My iris have started to open now too but the lighter purple ones first. I haven't seen the dark ones yet. I don't believe the flower growing next to your Iris is a weed, it looks like spiderwort like I have growing.

    1. Hi Kathy,
      Thank you. Oh I'll be the lighter color is beautiful. It is funny last night on our local SCETV they had this plant on their people were asking about it. You are right it is a Spiderwort. Thanks too.

  5. Hi Dolly,
    I love Gloria and the irises. Spring is the best time of year for me. I like seeing all the new life bursting from unsuspected places. I cannot really see that small plant well, but the color resembles wild hyacinth. I hope you find out what it is...

    1. Thank you Heidi. For me too, ditto to all you said about Spring...Found out and it is a Spiderwort. We had them when I lived at home and I have carried them to every home I have lived in almost. It is good to know the name...they said on the SCETV show last night that it was a weed but heck I like it. It has not gotten invasive at any of my gardens. I can't wait to see what you have been up too this week....

  6. Beautiful flowers, and I think your little flower might be spiderwort. Now I see that someone above me has suggested the same. I think they are so cute, but don't like the name.

  11. We have none of these delights in AZ. Thank you so much for sharing your blooms!

  12. Don't know if anyone has identified your mystery plant.....but I think it's spiderwort (trycentra?) - It should bloom most of the summer if you cut back the blooms. One of my favorites in the garden.

  13. Dolly, I love your water girl fountain! The white azalea behind it is gorgeous as well as your irises. It's a good thing people identified your other flower. I am unfamiliar with it. Have a great weekend!
